Georgina Schaeffer spent more than fifteen years working for shelter and society magazines as a writer, editor, and stylist, including posts as Executive Editor at Quest magazine and Senior Editor at Town & Country. Her work has been published in Absolute, Avenue, Elle Décor, Hamptons Cottages & Gardens and more.
